On Monday night, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are poised to host the Philadelphia Eagles in the concluding game of Wild Card Weekend.
The NFC South champions enter the matchup with significant momentum, securing the division title by winning five of their last six games. In contrast, the Eagles concluded the regular season on a less favorable note, losing five of their last six games.
During Friday’s episode of ESPN’s Get Up, NFL analysts Ryan Clark, Damien Woody, Dan Graziano, and Mike Tannenbaum all unanimously predicted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to emerge victorious against the Philadelphia Eagles, considering the recent form of both teams.
For the Eagles to defend their NFC champion status, they must revert to the form that propelled them to a 10-1 record earlier in the season, as opposed to their recent struggles.
While the Eagles are marginally favored in Monday’s game and have previously defeated Tampa on the road this season, the Buccaneers, led by resurgent quarterback Baker Mayfield, have made a triumphant return to the playoffs. Mayfield’s resurgence has been a key factor after a season that saw him on two different teams.
As the Eagles aim to silence their skeptics on Monday, the Buccaneers are eager to extend their season with a significant victory.
